Lohan really pulls it off well in this fun, non-traditional romantic comedy. It's a smart, funny film that kept me completely and constantly entertained as it follows the story of an office secretary faking pregnancy in a desperate attempt to keep her awful but financially-necessary job.
It's a great story and keeps you rapt with unpredictable chemistry between Lohan and male lead Luke Kirby while her lie spirals out of control at home and at work as she is unable to come clean and finds it necessary to expand her fake pregnancy bump. The movie is full of great supporting roles with the likes of Cheryl Hines, Chris Parnell, and a lot of familiar faces. Really enjoyed the soundtrack and overall it was a very pleasant deviation from your traditional romantic comedy. For anyone who's ever worked a crappy job you just couldn't afford to ditch like myself, it's really relatable in a fun way and keeps you laughing as it goes. Would be a great watch for the whole family.
Being a fan of Lindsay from The Parent Trap to Mean Girls, I was pleasantly surprised to find her just as on-point as ever, despite all the negative hype of her personal life lately. She certainly seems to find herself at home playing an adult role but keeping the lovable, fun quirkiness that we all fell in love with in the first place.
